Miele Guide choices for 2009/2010 in Japan
- Robb S Oct 19, 2009 06:47 AM
The Miele Guide has announced its top five restaurants for Japan:
1. L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon (Tokyo)
2. Restaurant de Joel Robuchon (Tokyo)
3. L'Osier (Tokyo)
4. Roan Kikunoi (Kyoto)
5. The White Fox (Tokyo)
(Robuchon also got the top two restaurants in Hong Kong, and the top pick for all of Asia.)
[Moderators: please do us a favor and leave this in Japan (as you've done with Michelin discussions) rather than moving it to Media.]
No offense to the owner of the White Fox who is a nice guy, and the food is quite good, but among the 5 best in Japan, I don't think anyone in their right mind could claim that.
Sounds like the Miele folks are confused.
re: Uncle Yabai
And don't forget, the best Japanese restaurant in Asia couldn't possibly be in Japan. Of course a HK branch of an American-based "chain" of Japanese restaurants would have better Japanese food than, say, any restaurant in Japan.
I'm curious about White Fox. I'll have to do more research.
